About the College/Department:
Eastern Kentucky University is a regional, coeducational, public institution of higher education offering general and liberal arts programs, pre-professional and professional training in education and various other fields at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Located in Richmond, Madison County, Kentucky, EKU has a distinguished record of more than a century of educational service to the Commonwealth. Eastern Kentucky University is committed to access, equal opportunity, dignity, respect, and inclusion for all people, as integral to a learning environment in which intellectual creativity and diversity thrives.

Situated near the heart of the Bluegrass, Richmond is served by a network of major highways that make EKU easily accessible from all parts of Kentucky and surrounding states. Richmond is 26 miles southeast of Lexington, Kentucky. Interstate Highways I-75 (north-south) and I-64 (east-west) make the metropolitan areas of Cincinnati, 112 miles to the north, and Louisville, 110 miles to the west, within convenient distance by automobile. Richmond is also served by U.S. Route 25 from Southeastern Kentucky and Kentucky Route 52 from the east and west. The Bluegrass, Mountain, Daniel Boone, and Cumberland Parkways provide even greater accessibility by automobile since the city is located near the convergence of these arterial highways into the interstate system.

EKU is dedicated to high-quality instruction, scholarship, and service, and places emphasis on the three in that order. Through its colleges and schools, the University seeks to offer quality instruction at a variety of degree levels in general education, the arts, the sciences, business, education, pre-professional and professional areas, and applied and technical disciplines. Through consultative services, continuing education, and the extended campus, the University seeks to provide service to the community and the region. Research seeks both to advance knowledge in the subject matter areas with which the University is concerned and to support the primary function of teaching.

Position Summary:
The Eastern Kentucky University's Department of Social Work is seeking applications for an open rank tenure-track faculty member who will be assigned to teach in both the MSW and BSW programs, with primary assignment in the MSW online program. This is a 9-month, full-time position beginning in August 2023. Salary range is $56-60k with the opportunity to teach additional courses in the summer by contract. The BSW program has been accredited since 1977. The MSW program anticipates full accreditation by October 2023.

We seek a faculty member who is interested in promoting an innovative, student-centered programming that values interprofessional collaboration associated with addictions intervention, mental health, child and family services, social advocacy and justice, and leadership and management. We further hope this new faculty member will help us demonstrate how to apply social work practice, theory, and research as part of our MSW program concentration in interprofessional social work practice.
The candidate selected will teach and engage in ongoing scholarship and service to the profession and community consistent with University expectations for tenure-track faculty. This includes an 80% (4×4) teaching responsibility. We have a course facilitator model which enables smaller class sizes and team collaboration. Remote candidates are encouraged to apply but must be able to teach in person (if needed) in the Richmond KY BSW program, maintain service standards as part of tenure requirements, and comply with limited outside-employment stipulations.
